Just to settle a "discussion" with my oh - what age/school year would you think these spellings are for?

angeldiver Wed 02-Nov-16 21:30:02

Year 1 or 2?

ballsdeep Wed 02-Nov-16 21:30:10

Year two

FlopIsMyParentingGuru Wed 02-Nov-16 21:32:06

Year two or three

Similar here-year 3

LoisEighty Wed 02-Nov-16 21:35:20

I think they do cious and tion in year 1. I would guess year 2 but could be 1, 2 or 3.

leccybill Wed 02-Nov-16 21:35:53

Year 2, really?
My DD is Y2 and getting things like flight, rude, tail/tale, dream.

Greythornes Wed 02-Nov-16 21:38:00

I would say year 3 to know how to spell, year 1/2 to know how to read

ballsdeep Wed 02-Nov-16 21:39:56

Aren't these read, wrote, inc? If so they like children to finish the spelling program by year two so these would be included

SlumdogMummy Wed 02-Nov-16 21:40:04

tion is a year 3/4 word ending
cious is a year 5/6 word ending

LoisEighty Wed 02-Nov-16 21:42:08

Maybe its just RWI they do tion and cious in year 1/2 then.

irvineoneohone Wed 02-Nov-16 21:42:33

top table yr1 or yr2

Ni58 Wed 02-Nov-16 21:44:12

-tion is Y2

ballsdeep Wed 02-Nov-16 21:45:16

I agree with Lois

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Wed 02-Nov-16 21:46:47

I would say year 2, but could be anywhere between yr 1 and 3 depending on the scheme.

Do you know what those pages are from? It looks quite impressive.

Ni58 Wed 02-Nov-16 21:48:31

It's the National Curriculum.
In Y2 you teach -tion spellings but would probably stick to two syllable words.

Artandco Wed 02-Nov-16 21:50:24

My son is year 2 and has spellings similar. Has to also use similar words in his story writing

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Wed 02-Nov-16 21:50:43

Year 1s should be taught 2-syllable words. More than 2 syllables seems like a reasonable progression for year 2.

freshstart22 Wed 02-Nov-16 21:51:30

Year 3/4

HeyThatsNotMyName Wed 02-Nov-16 21:53:12

It's Ruth Miskin RWI so year 2. However, as a teacher, I have had children in year 3 and 4 in my groups who would not be able to read and spell these words.

The words are from Grey level RWI with tious cious and tion spellings. The matching reading books are 'A Celebration on Planet Vox' and 'A Very Dangerous Dinosaur'. It's the last RWI level which is designed for the end of Y1, with Y2s going on to RWI Language and Literacy. In reality the last grey group I taught had a mixture of Y1 to Y4, with the majority being Y2.

DespicableMeh Wed 02-Nov-16 22:33:37

Thanks all, interesting to see the variations. My youngest who's 5 and in Y1 brought these home tonight and read them with no hesitation. I was trying to show my oh that their standard of reading was pretty good.

It is Read, Write, Inc and dc is currently on yellow books.

At my DCs' school, those words could crop up anywhere in the spellings between years 1 and 6, depending on ability. Also, the words jump from easy to hard and back again randomly from week to week, and sometimes from year to year! We had words like exceptional in year 1 and then House in year 4. Seems to be no logic in it!

padkin Wed 02-Nov-16 22:45:50

Those sounds are part of the Set 3 that children start learning from Orange level onwards in the Speed sound part of the phonics lesson, so by Yellow level they should hopefully recognise them quite confidently. Good stuff!
